Larry Cox of the Kairos Center and Savina Martin of the Massachusetts Poor People’s Campaign joined us for the second webinar in our series of online discussions celebrating the Kairos Center’s 5th anniversary year! In this conversation, we reflected on the power of religions and human rights for building the movement to end poverty, led by the poor.

For five years as Kairos: The Center for Religions, Rights, and Social Justice and fifteen years as the Poverty Initiative, the members of the Kairos Center have worked to build a network of community and religious leaders across the US and beyond. Many of these leaders are deeply engaged in the work of building the movement to end poverty today, including playing key leadership roles in the Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival.

To mark our 5th anniversary as the Kairos Center for Religions, Rights, and Social Justice, we are hosting a series of webinars that will highlight the tremendous work and leadership of our network. We will look at the lessons of the poor organizing the poor, examine the role of human rights and religion in movement-building, hear from some of the frontline work of leaders across the country, and much more.

Support the Kairos Center

In the past year the Kairos Center has had tremendous breakthroughs in our movement building. We have begun to shift the narrative around poverty and build real power among the poor and dispossessed. As we prepare for the days and years ahead we know the promise of this movement rests on the strength, insight, and unity of its leaders. The Kairos Center is dedicated to deepening and broadening its role in these efforts — please donate today to help us continue our important work.
